Why Not Me? (Book review)
Ever you heard of Mindy Kaling? Have you heard of a show called The Office? It played on NBC for 8 years based on a town in Pennsylvania. Now you know what I'm talking about, right? Mindy was an actress/writer for that show!
This is not Mindy's first book so that makes her a seasoned author even though she writes for her show. This book is easy to feel in her company. She talks to you like your her friend, a good old loyal gal pal hanging out together. This book is a comfortable read.
Mindy walks you through various aspects of her life. Her life before she became rich and famous or lack there of and her current condition as a celebrity. She doesn't paint everything to have been an easy journey. She doesn't even make you envious at some points. I think that's what makes it a good read. It's a book you can read and get almost the staight facts.
This book would be a great gift to an aspiring actress or even a struggling one because where there's good times there are also bad. Sometimes to see someone else struggle helps motivate or encourage us more. The flip side is you could just sit around havin a pity party for yourself and not accomplish anything.
Mindy only gives you a small glimpse of how she got to wear she is today and she tells your in detail that she worked for it. She was nervous and scared she knows she doesn't fit the typical actress requisite but she plows through anyways.
This was an entertaining book and I was both entertained and relieved when I read it. She had a lot of funny scenarios in the book and I was relieved that it's possible to work hard and get somewhere.
It's all in what you make it so make it what you want.
